Aha!  Getting back to the original poster's question (sorry for the 
2-year wait Gregor)...  If you try the above in an ESS mode it
doesn't work.  That's because ESS, apparently, has re-defined "{"
as ess-electric-brace.  Similar problems surround "(".  However,
I have now checked in the fix for "(" since it is related to another
bug report with respect to skeleton-pair related breakage.  Not sure 
what to do about "{" yet.
